2015 CT USA Boxing Junior Olympic Champsionships

2015 CT-USA Boxing Junior Olympic Championships

The 2015 CT-USA Boxing Junior Olympic Championships will be produced/ presented by the “Charter Oak Boxing Academy” and hosted by/at “Bright Futures Boxing,” formerly the San Juan Center and of course regulated by CT-USA Boxing on Saturday April 4th.

Weigh Ins will strictly be, from 4pm to 6pm and scratch weigh will determine the weight classes and calendar year 2015 will determine the competition age of your boxer. So whatever your boxer’s age is as of calendar year 2015 is what he/she will enter and box in the tournament, from the “States” all the way to “Nationals.” We will be adhering to the old USA Boxing Weigh In procedure where a boxer only gets two chances at the scale and cannot be more than two pounds over to shed weight.

This year for the first time USA Boxing will host Bantams (11 and 12 yr olders), Intermediates (13 & 14 yr olders) and of course seniors (15 & 16 year olders) at Nationals. Which means everyone in those age divisions, entering their state tournament with “FIVE” or more bouts will be eligible to progress, if victorious, to the “Box Offs” to “Lake Placid” all the way to “Nationals” in West Virginia!

Because of this we will have two classes of competition, a “Novice, under five bouts” and an ‘Open, five bouts or over.” For Boxers that do not have a contested bout we will try to make as many bouts as possible amongst the remaining J.O.s in an effort to give our Junior Olympic Boxers more experience to further our J. O. program as a whole.

Also, towards this end every boxer who enters the tournament that does not have a contested bout and/or boxes on the card will receive a medal. Those who do box on the card will receive a “Champion” or “Number One Contender” trophy. There will be an Outstanding Boxer & Best Sportsman Trophy awarded in each division.

For Boxers that ‘Win” or “Walk-Over” at the Connecticut vs New England Box-Offs (Which should take place the weekend after in Mass) and proceed to Lake Placid N.Y. on April 24th, 25th & 26th, for the Region One Championships, housing priority will be given to the Intermediates and Seniors to stay at the Olympic Training Center. Since including the Bantams is new I believe this “Housing Accommodation” will be the rule but it could be subject to change and I will keep all posted on this!

Lastly, “No book no Box!” So make sure your boxers all have their 2015 Passbooks to present before they step on the scale at Weigh Ins. Coaches must be certified and also have their updated 2015 Red Pass Books to coach in the corner. Please also be sure to have your boxers and their parents fill out and sign the attached J.O. Boxer forms and present them at the scale. Boxers just need to fill out the forms that are for the Boxers.

Good Luck to all and let’s make sure that we “Adults:” Coach’s, Officials and Parents alike set a great example as to how to act for, “All of Our Kids!!!” If you have any questions you can reach me at 860-918-2844 or E-Mail me at Johnny.Callas@cobaboxing.com !


For The Kids,

Johnny Callas

ANNUAL MEETING / REGISTRATION NOTES

Thank you to all the gyms that came to the Annual Meeting! We covered a wide variety of topics and had some lively discussion among the group.

And a HUGE thank you to Jenni Keenan-Shuttleworth for allowing the LBC to use Fighting Fitness to conduct the meeting!

Here are some Registration items that were shared with the group:

- 2015 registrations begin on November 1, 2014; if you register anytime after 11/1/14 your membership will be good until 12/31/15
- As of NOW there will be no increase in membership fees for 2015. However, the last increase came in the last 2 weeks of December and so this is subject to change. They will remain $53/boxer, $88 or $103/ coach and $200/gym unless we hear differently.
- There is no deadline for the boxer physical requirement- as of now no physical is needed to participate.

Any questions? Please reach out to us!

Dear Fellow USA Boxing Members and Amateur Boxing Enthusiasts,

Roland and I have enjoyed being part of USA Boxing for 20 years and we plan to continue enjoying what has become a special part of our lives. It is a good feeling to be ringside as young boxers step up and challenge themselves while family and friends show their support and their coaches invest their hearts and souls in the outcome.
We’ve grown to admire and respect the infrastructure of amateur boxing; the coaches, their teams, the skills required guiding/training ‘the kids’ and the demands of running a gym.

At this time our CT Local Boxing Committee (LBC) is blessed with some outstanding and dedicated coaches and officials. This makes it possible for us to step down as elected LBC President and Secretary making way for new talent and energy to lead the LBC while we enjoy boxing as officials only. The lack of competent, consistent, transparent and accountable leadership at the national level requires an ongoing patience which we no longer have.

The CT LBC By-laws do not cover this situation. We are taking our cue from the national office and appointing an interim president and secretary until the next election to be held in the fall of 2016.
We are pleased to announce Luis Rivera, USA Boxing Official, accepted the duties of Interim President and Heather Dill, USA Boxing Official, accepted the position of Interim Secretary.
Vice President, Ahmad Mickens; Co-Treasurers, Jason Concepcion and Sandra Montalvo; and CT Chief of Officials, Lou Pontacoloni, will continue to fulfill their elected positions. We’re sure it will be a smooth transition.

Please extend your support to these new officers who are stepping up and volunteering their time and energy to continue LBC expansion. CT is one of the smallest LBCs in the US and yet there are at least 3-4 national champions every year!

Roland vested himself totally in his position as Region 1 Junior Olympic Chairperson and strived to improve the event at the Olympic Training Center every year. Giving the event T-shirts with the names of participating boxers and the group pictures to the kids are his favorites. Watching Shakur Stevenson attend the JO regionals for years and succeed is a good feeling. In April he resigned the position at the 2014 Regional Championship in Brooklyn and a new JO Region 1 Chairperson was elected.

Thank you for letting us serve you. You’re a wonderful group of people who have enriched our lives. We remain in your corner, pleased to be your friends and fellow USA Boxing members.

See you ringside. Kindest regards,

Phyllis & Roland Roy

AIBA Passbook Update

I have started to replace the white USA Boxing passbooks with blue AIBA-issued books. Boxers who are 15-40 will be receiving the new passbooks. JOs and Master boxers, as well as coaches/officials have not changed. I will return white passbooks in case boxers would like to keep them BUT only blue passbooks will be accepted for competition after they have been issued (returned books have been labeled "VOID"). Any questions please let me know!

STATE OF CONNECTICUT FORMS FOR CLUB RENEWALS

The first of the year is a busy time for paperwork. As well as renewing online with USA Boxing on the national website, usaboxing.org, there are State of CT forms due as well. The forms are available for download here.

The AMATEUR BOXING PROGRAM YEARLY REGISTRATION FORM is due in January of each year.

The FACILITY REGISTRATION FORM has a $100 fee and is used for those clubs that plan to hold a USAB sanctioned event in the club facility.
Det Mark Langlais, the Administrator of Boxing in the State of Connecticut, explains. As the regulatory agency, we here at DESPP oversee all regulatory issues for USA Boxing in Connecticut.
The FACILITY REGISTRATION FORM is required by any facility in which any USA Boxing registered club is going to hold an event in. This form is required to be signed off by the building inspector/official as well as the fire marshal indicating that they approve the facility for a boxing event. It is a yearly requirement but it is not necessary to renew or resubmit the form if you decide not to have a boxing event in the following year. I hope this helps and answers any questions you may have. If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to call or email me at the below listed contact numbers.

Connecticut SILVER GLOVES Tournament

Connecticut SILVER GLOVES Tournament
Takes place Saturday, December 28 at the SONO Field House at 365 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr., Norwalk, CT.

Weigh-ins begin at 4 PM.

The tournament is open to boxers ages 8 - 15. The age determination is January 1, 2014 EXCEPT 8 year old boxers must be 8 before entering the CT Tournament.

There is NO 5 bout minimum requirement.

Silver Gloves boxers are allowed to weigh twice to make weight.

The Silver Gloves Association franchise holder has received approval for their proposal to run the Silver Gloves Tournament without following any new rules.

NEW: The Silver Gloves Association has received permission for 8 and 9 year old boxers to advance to the regional and national tournaments!


The REGIONAL Silver Gloves Tournament takes place the following week-end, January 4 & 5, 2014. However the tournament location has changed. Instead of taking place at the clean, comfortable and friendly Oneonta Boys & Girls Club in Oneonta, NY, we will go to Elmira, NY. Thanks to the Oneonta Boys & Girls Club for their long affiliation. The details will be posted as they are received.


The NATIONAL Silver Gloves Tournament is January 29 - February 1, 2014 in Independence, Missouri.

Silver Gloves will continue to hold an OPEN NATIONAL FEMALE SILVER GLOVES TOURNAMENT. NO prequalification will be required.

MEN'S OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP AND US NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS CHANGES

There have been numerous communications from the USA Boxing National Office during the past couple of months about changes being made by the president and the board of directors.


First, there was the new Rule Book. Some of the important rule changes were presented at the September 29th clinic. There will be more information about which rules will be adopted at the LBC level.


The latest changes came out in the USA Boxing October Newsletter. 2014 is proving to be a year of sweeping changes in the way the US Championships are conducted.

It is confusing. We hope to simplify the national championships situation in the following sections.

IMPORTANT
All US Championships will be OPEN tournaments and athletes that meet the following criteria will be eligible:
1. 2014 USA Boxing member
2. US Citizen
3. Meet the minimum bout requirement for the age group

***************************************************************************
The CT Senior State Championship, formerly called the Men's Open Championship, will take place Saturday, October 26, at the Revolution Training show which will be held at the Yerwood Center, 90 Fairfield Avenue Stamford, CT Weigh-ins: 5:00 PM

All Senior Boxers are encouraged to enter.
Age 19-40
Born between 1974 and 1995
Must be a US citizen
Must have a minimum of 5 bouts

The winners of this CT Senior State Championship qualify to box at the Senior Regional Championship at the US Training Center in Lake Placid, NY.

(Due to a scheduling conflict at the US Olympic Training Center, the Senior Regional Championship will be conducted on November 22-24. The regional was previously set for November 15-17 but had to be moved.)

At this time the Senior National Championship has NOT been scheduled. The Senior National Championship will be an OPEN Tournament like all US National Championships will be from now on.
This tournament will be conducted wearing headgear. NOTE: The dates and location for the Senior National Championship are still being identified.

There is a US National Championship scheduled for the Elite Men (NO headgear) and Elite Women (headgear). This is an OPEN tournament so all boxers, ages 19- 40, US citizen, and a minimum of 20 bouts for men and 5 bouts for women may enter. This tournament takes place in Spokane, Washington January 18-26, 2014.

*********************************************************************************

YOUTH Boxers, age 17 and 18 now have a National Tournament. The Junior/Youth Team National Open will be held in Reno, Nevada January 5-12, 2014.
These Youth boxers are welcome to participate in our Senior State Tournament. The information is above. Youth winners may advance to Lake Placid.
Youth: age 17 and 18
Born in 1996 and 1997
Must be a US citizen
Must have a minimum of 5 bouts

*********************************************************************************

JUNIORS (JO) Boxers, age 15 and 16 also follow the new eligibility guidelines for the National Junior Championship
Junior: age 15 and 16
Born in 1998 and 1999
Must be a US citizen
Must have a minimum of 5 bouts

The Junior/Youth National Team Open takes place in Reno, Nevada January 5-12, 2014.
This means the 2014 JO (Juniors) state tournament and JO regional tournament at Lake Placid will not take place before the Junior National Team Open!
At this time we don't know what will happen throughout 2014 for the JOs (Juniors) since the nationals are taking place at the beginning of the year.

*********************************************************************************
We will share all information as soon as it is received. Please feel free to contact us with questions. Your questions help all of us get a better understanding of how the changes affect us.

2013 USAB National Championships Announcement by Charles Butler, USA Boxing President, February 11, 2013



Dear Friends in Boxing,

Thank you for your many responses to our last email. Your responses were overwhelmingly supportive!

· You supported removal of the Headgear by a majority of two to one.
· You supported going to a 10-point must scoring system by a majority of eight to one.
· You supported providing two divisions for men's boxers at the 2013 National Championships. The vast majority of
respondents favor the right for male athletes aged 19-40 to choose their division.
o Elite Men's Division - without headgear
o Senior Men's Division - with headgear

The USA Boxing Board of Directors supported tonight's decision of following the AIBA Technical Rules for the 2013 USA Boxing National Championships by a unanimous vote. The Registration Paperwork for the 2013 National Championships is now available at usaboxing.org.

I will be writing again soon with an update on our Reform Process. I wish you the best and look forward to seeing you at the 2013 USA Boxing National Championships.

Yours in boxing,

Charles

USA BOXING AGE DETERMINATION: Effective for 2013


USA Boxing is implementing the AIBA age determination rules so that our athletes will meet the requirements for International Competition.

Therefore, for 2013 the following age division will need to meet the below age determination requirements:

Junior (15-16 years old): Athletes must be 15-16 years old in the year of 2013 to compete in the Junior Division. This means they must be born in 1997-1998 to be eligible. Athletes cannot turn 17 anytime during the year of 2013.

Youth (17-18 years old): Athletes must be 17-18 years old in the year of 2013 to compete in the Youth Division. This means they must be born in 1995-1996 to be eligible. Athletes cannot turn 19 anytime during the year of 2013.

Elite (19-34 years old): Athletes must be 19-34 years old in the year of 2013 to compete in the Elite Division. This means they must be born in 1994-1979 to be eligible. Athletes cannot turn 35 anytime during the year of 2013.

The year of 2013 will be a transitional year, as some athletes may only have been able to compete in the Junior Olympic Tournament for one year. This also means that athletes who are 16 and turning 17 in 2013 will be eligible for the USA Boxing National Championships.
